What You Need to Make This Simple Lemon Garlic Pasta

Start by cooking your fettuccini in a pot until it is al dente. Then, while the pasta is cooking, heat your butter and oil in a skillet.

When the pasta is finished cooking, drain the water from the pot and add the pasta to the pan with the sauce. Then, add in the lemon juice, zest, and parmesan.
